This report is a literature review of existing deterioration models used to predict corrosion-related deterioration on reinforced concrete bridges. Most models in this review are based on the performance of all bridges in a system. In addition, the model information was developed using condition ratings provided by technicican-inspectors performing visual surveys in accordance with the National Bridge Instpection Standards. Discusssion of the models illustrates equation definitions, research parameters and life-cycle cost analyses. An annotated bibliography is included.
